of arming the syrians, finding those syrian moderates, those pro-western rebels fighting bashar al assad, that may be a new strategy on the part of romney as opposed to the obama administration which has been totally reluctant to arm any of the rebels in syria fearing those weapons could wind up in the hands of the so-called terrorist, the bad guys, if you will. that's a clear differentiation, but i think from the american political perspective, there's no great desire to get involved militarily on the ground or in the air for that matter in syria or elsewhere. >> all right. well, thank you very much. appreciate it. of course, we're fwog bring in fareed zakaria to talk about this. fareed in new york. of course, you were watching this as well, and one of the points that you brought up is that these two leaders, these two men really see eye to eye on a lot of foreign policy issues. the only one that we really heard that was different was what you had actually talked about and that was romney's stance on arming the syrian rebels. how does the united states go about doing that, because we kn
that they obtain the arms they need to defeat assad's tanks and helicopters and fighter jets. iran is sending arms to assad because they know his downfall would be a strategic defeat for him. we should be working no less vigorously through our international partners to support the many syrians who would deliver that defeat to iran, whether sitting on the sidelines. it is essential that we develop influence with those forces in syria that will one day lead a country that sits at the heart of the middle east. >> mitt romney is saying, arm the rebels. again, the question being how well do we know them, how do we know which rebels we should be arming, that's the question for you. >> the wording there is interesting. he's not saying i believe the united states should arm the rebels, he's saying we want to make sure that they obtain rebels with the help of our partners and some would argue, look, the vetting of these rebel groups is being done already by the obama administration. there are reports of a cia presence there at the border already trying to figure out who is who, who is friendly who is not s
, getting manicures, in the capital city of damascus, who aren't necessarily pro assad, who aren't necessarily pro rebel, stuck in the middle. here is that they told you. >> on many days the death toll around the capital far higher than for other cities. but where they can, people are trying to hold on to their old lives. for this woman, that's a few minutes at the beauty salon. it may look like normal life, but it is not. >> every day we hearing this boom, boom. and everything else. and there is a lot going on. >> you don't worry about it? >> i worry. i worry sick about it, but nothing we can do. >> reporter: she tells me she hates the killing, supports neither government nor rebels. wants them to talk, feels stuck in the middle. so too the salon's owner. >> i cannot go to the country side without being worried somebody will stop me. is it the real army or the other army stopping me? what answer i should answer if they ask me with whom i am? so it is really difficult now because you are really stuck in the middle. >> it is just bizarre, seeing these women, are they desensitized
who are -- who are fighting and dying in syria under bashar assad. >> let's talk about the economy now and this new ad that's come out from the obama campaign. peter mentioned it. let me play it for you this morning. i'd love your reaction. here it is. >> i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. >> bernie madoff, ken lay, dennis dozenlousky, criminals, gluttons of greed and the evil genius who toerd over them. one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird. >> big bird. >> big bird. >> it's me, big bird. >> big, yellow, a menace to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. >> mitt romney, taking on our enemies no matter where they nest. >> i'm not even sure what the question is, senator, but i'm just -- this is the kind of ad that just does get attention, so what's your reaction to it? >> oh, i think it probably gets attention, but, again, it may show a paucity of ideas and ways to criticize mitt romney. the fact is that the economy is still in very bad shape, and obviously the ame
